Okay, this is going to sound weird - and also probably bad - but I loathe Christmas shopping. Some of it is my fault. I always leave it too late then work myself up into a frothing frenzy of madness.
But some of it is, well, other people. Other people and their dead, gormless, shopping eyes, who run around grabbing stuff from the shelves as if the world is approaching a 10 year famine; who bump into you and tread on your toes without apologise. And the massive, massive queues for everything and then the long sodden, freezing journey home.
Call me Scrooge, if you will, but Christmas shopping sucks. Still, if it's got to be done, might as well do it in style, eh? Presenting, the Christmas shopping outfit. Flat boots, lots of layers, cosy accessories, thick socks and a touch of colour to keep the spirits up. Like wearing a mug of hot cocoa - with a cheeky dash of brandy in it. The bag is cross body, ideal for keeping your valuables close. Looks good too.
